@LinuxLounge Thanks for writing this blog post. There's a ton of incorrect information floating around on social media about the vaccines, and it's great to see a rational view on their safety.
@feditips Thank you for posting about this issue anyway. I had been aware of Lemmy's problems for a while, and am glad that there are many other fediverse platforms to choose from.
@feditips Second, I get that lemmy.ml describes itself as "leftist" but deleting conservative communities (ones that are not far-right) without further explanation is too exclusionary for the most prominent instance of a fediverse platform.
Deleting the libertarian community and then trying to justify this by saying "it's conservative" is too much.
@feditips First, libertarianism is not necessarily conservative. Libertarianism is about empowering people over governments. In fact, libertarianism originated from left-wing politics:
There are left-wing and right-wing flavors of libertarianism:
Here's a diagram of what libertarianism includes:
@feditips Proud of you for speaking out about this touchy, but important, topic. Iemmy.ml (which displays plenty of content from lemmygrad.ml) being the face of Lemmy is as problematic as, for example, if Gab were the face of Mastodon.
The large amount of pro-authoritarian propaganda on lemmy.ml is very shocking, considering that lemmy.ml is the most prominent instance of Lemmy run by Lemmy's developers.

@itsfoss With a 10.3” display and Wacom stylus support, the PineNote is more of an upgrade to the reMarkable tablet than the Kindle.
@david @pixelfed PixelDroid is a Pixelfed app for Android. https://f-droid.org/en/packages/org.pixeldroid.app/
I think this is the only published app right now.

@Tommy Good recommendation, but don't forget AnySoftKeyboard!
@tuxedocomputers The 4K AMOLED display option with 450 nit brightness and 100% DCI-P3 gamut coverage looks like an incredible feature for graphics and video work, or just for anyone who wants to use an excellent screen.
@oldcoder @coolpup The main challenges with self-hosting email are ensuring email deliverability (which can be difficult from a VPS) and ensuring that the server stays up in the event of an attack or malfunction. Managed email services like @Tutanota and @protonmail are good solutions for users who do not want the maintenance overhead of self-hosting email, or who prefer end-to-end encryption.
This is a brand new server run by the main developers of the project as a spin-off of mastodon.social It is not focused on any particular niche interest - everyone is welcome as long as you follow our code of conduct!
